“Loved this hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I loved the hardwood flooring in the room. It was all very clean and smelled cleaned I loved the attention to detail such as the swan towels on the bed and the fan towels. Beds were comfy and clean. Rooms are spacious. Great hotel fora cheap rate!

Recently renovated, very clean. Staff was very friendly. A little more attention to detail would be nice. Our coffee pot was too small for the coffee maker so it didn't work. Easy to get to all surrounding highways and into town. Staff was very willing to help us with locating downtown and a good restaurant.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

I've stayed in numerous chain hotel/motels in Tyler and for the price none can compare with this one. It has been remodeled so some of the original infrastructure is apparent, but the upgrades are very good. I liked best -- the vinyl plank hardwood flooring instead of carpet because you can tell they're clean. Had no concerns about my kids and grand-kid roaming around the floors. Beds were comfortable and linens clean, as was the bathroom. TVs are new flatscreen, pool was well maintained. Only downside is location, north side of town but only a 10 minute drive from mall and dining so not a deal breaker.

Room Tip: Rooms over the pool if you have kids.

Basic clean hotel with very friendly staff at a great price. I have stayed in hotels that cost a lot more that were not as good or as comparable. Now if you want fancy this is not for you, but if you want economical and want to spend your hard earned bucks on other things this is the place for you. Easy to locate on the north west loop. Close to amenities. I will absolutely stay here again.

I liked the staff who were very friendly

Room Tip: I was on the bottom floor and did not hear any noise. I did not use the swimming pool and dont know...

OK, so this is no Hilton, Hyatt or Marriott. This hotel does, however, rate as good or better than many of the moderate chain hotels at a more gentle price. This hotel is clean and the furnishings appear to be brand new. The faucets shine and look like they've never been used at all. The tub, toilet and sink are immaculate. There are dispensers in the tub/shower for shampoo and liquid soap, each of them full. The hand towels and wash cloths are folded decoratively into a fan -- all of them! The bed in the room I was provided is extra firm; the pillows are small but there are plenty of them provided. There are several servings of coffee provided with the coffee maker in the room. The free internet service is lightning fast.

This property does not rate five full stars due to the following:
1. No carpeting (hardwood floors do have a certain appeal though)
2. Linens (both bed and bath) are mismatched and have a few holes.
3. The way the beds are made is very awkward... They are short-sheeted (remember camp as a kid?) toward the foot of the bed. This results in the bedspread having to be completely removed from the bed to pull the sheet and blanket up.

The lack of some sort of breakfast availability is a downer, but can't be expected at such a diminutive pricetag. This is a quality hotel and a bargain price; you get far more than what you pay for. I felt like I opened a present when I stumbled upon this property.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so request a ground floor room when you reserve if that is your preference or a...
